Nothing logical about this show.
15 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this rather silly show the gang has found themselves on an island that is occupied by Japanese fighters and their mission to to deflect the guns from firing on a passing convoy that has critical supplies.

Since the gang has stolen some war movies that was intended for Binghamton, McHale thinks of a way where he gets the Japs to think there is an Allied landing on the opposite side of the island which will make them move their big guns. McHale accomplishes this by splicing the war pictures together and placing large speakers on the island. Now the enemy will hear all the bombing and think the landing is taking place. But lets see if this far-fetched plan can work.

The best part of this episode is the taking of Binghamton's movies without the knowledge of the supply Sergeant. That scene was actually a nice piece of work. The rest of the script was very suspect and at times just downright inane. But at times most comedy sitcoms tend to lean toward the unbelievable. This show was a leaner.
